At our most recent summit, we discussed the ways that ‘Crowdfunding for Health’ offers opportunities for entrepreneurs to bring in the capital required to build new health and wellness apps and devices while also receiving feedback from early adopters and data that can be used for clinical validation.

MobiHealthNews recently reported that during the past month, more than 6 start-ups have created new Indiegogo campaigns to launch their digital health projects. Last month’s campaigns included Fitnotix, a company developing an online platforms to help consumers integrate fitness into their daily lives; CureCrowd, a platform dedicated to crowdsourcing health information from patients; and iFocusBand, a wearable brain training system containing three EEG sensors.

This month, crowdsourcing continues to grow, with projects including: UpRight, a posture correcting device; InstaMD, a headset and eVisit web portal that will provide patients with a way of providing their physicians with up-to-date medical information; and Lifekeeper, a health tracking system that pays special attention to monitoring risk of heart attack and stroke.
